This strategy paper outlines the objectives of and criteria for the second standard allocation of the Sudan Humanitarian Fund for 2018, for an amount totaling US$20.3 million.
The creation of ‘friendly spaces’ for women and girls has been a key strategy in the protection and empowerment of women and girls in South-Sudan since conflict re-erupted in the country in December 2013. This document provides guidance on the aims of these spaces, and how they can best be established and managed in the South Sudan context.
The needs of the cluster are solidly linked to displacement as a result of conflict, food insecurity, economic deterioration and to lesser extent, but also, disease outbreak. Populations that are subject to these eventualities will require Shelter/NFI emergency support. The cluster differentiates two contexts: inside of camps, including PoCs and other collective sites, and outside of camps.
The materials contained in this supplementary document complement those found in the existing IRP Guidance Note on Recovery – Health. The discussions and case studies contained herein portray an expanded and oftentimes fresh perspective on many of the issues found in the original guidance note on several new and emerging issues for which there exist best practices and lessons learned.
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Protection Mainstreaming Toolkit (hereafter referred to as “Toolkit”) is designed as a companion to the GPC Protection Mainstreaming Training Package (hereafter referred to as “Training Package”). The Training Package is the starting point to understand the concept and principles of “protection mainstreaming”.
The purpose of the Programme Manual for the Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) is to provide partners with information for good programming based on IASC guidance as well as to define minimum programmatic requirements for SHF projects. Guidance specific to the context in Sudan is included when available. All partners are expected to work within the HCT Minimum Operating Standards.
Specific strategic orientations or additional programmatic requirements may be specified in any allocation paper.

2. Background & Rationale
In the rapidly changing context of South Sudan, accurate and timely information can save lives as people can be warned to flee, hide or regroup. Information also plays a crucial role in directing people toward appropriate humanitarian assistance.
Since the onset of the current phase of the South Sudan conflict in December 2013, nearly 3 million people have been displaced. Two million people have fled to neighbouring countries, and another 1.9 million others remain internally displaced. The ongoing conflict in South Sudan, combined with increasing food insecurity, as well as economic crisis, are contributing to heightened protection risks for children.
In 2018, there will be Humanitarian Response Plans in 23 countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, Chad, Cameroon, CAR, DRC, Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Myanmar, Pakistan, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen. The HRPs for Cameroon, Chad, CAR, DRC, Somalia, Haiti, Sudan, Nigeria (and potentially Niger and Afghanistan) will be multi-year Plans.

Uganda is the largest refugee hosting country in Africa, with more than one million refugees and asylum seekers. Since the outbreak of conflict in South Sudan in 2013, Uganda has been experiencing increasing numbers of refugees, especially in the districts of West Nile, Northern Uganda. In light of the deteriorating security situation in South Sudan, a continued influx of refugees to Uganda is expected.
According to UNHCR, the registered number of new refugees from South Sudan has reached 779,622.
86% of the new refugees are women and children.
The Skills for Life + Toolkit helps teachers give children and youth information and skills to make things using appropriate technology that will help them during emergencies. The Skills for Life + Toolkit contains:
Research has shown that young people in schools benefit from special programmes that teach life skills. Life skills promote positive health practices and reduce risky behaviour. Life skills are especially important during an emergency. It should be used along with the Skills for Life picture charts for children.
It is the responsibility of all humanitarian actors and the government to take measures to address Genderbased violence (GBV). This strategy provides a common understanding on the priorities, approaches and responsibilities of actors in the humanitarian response to GBV in South Sudan. It is a foundation to enhance cooperation on GBV prevention and response between humanitarian actors, the government, donors, the international community, the UN agencies and more broadly.
Are you looking for PSEA Networks at country levels ?
Three SEA coordination mechanisms exist in CAR: HCT, UNCT, and SRSG/MINUSCA. Common actors bridge the task-forces at both senior and technical levels i.e. HC, DHC, UNHCR, UNFPA, UNICEF. (HCT) PSEA Task Force
Pooled funds are considered to be one of the most efficient mechanisms of humanitarian financing as they reduce transaction costs and allow for a better prioritization of assistance among different organizations. They enable humanitarian partners operating in countries affected by natural disasters and armed conflict to quickly deliver flexible and effective life-saving assistance to people who need it the most. You can contribute to two main types of pooled funds:
